Justice is one of the Divine Truths,
One of the Forms that Plato understood,
One of the Secrets of the universe,
That one understands only through remembrance,
And through constant thought.
Since Justice is different from justice,
There are so many things to understand
About the word and the thing we believe in.
Justice is the thing that affects everyone;
It is good and fair,
And looks for what is best in the world.
Justice is selfless and impartial,
Thus making it fair for those who have done wrong.
God's Justice is fair and impartial,
For it brings benefits to those who have
Lived their lives selflessly
And punishes those who have
Lived their lives selfishly.
The Father in Heaven does not discern
Based on race,
Sex, Sexual Orientation,
Age, or anything else,
But discerns upon the moral character of a man,
For that is Justice.
The other thing is justice,
The one that humans can truly comprehend,
For it is selfish,
Unfair and discriminatory,
And prejudiced beyond all belief.
A man who knows justice
But does not know Justice
Will believe that the innocent man can be convicted
And he, the perpetrator, cannot be,
For he sees the world as unfair,
And the punishment unjust.
That is justice that man knows.
Justice is fair and all-forgiving.
It does what is fair and does
What is best,
It is the thing we all know as Truth,
For it is a secret of the universe.
